Vance McDonald would have probably been grateful to have been drafted anywhere.
But his girlfriend is happy he landed with the 49ers.
The tight end from Rice was planning to propose to Kendi Davis anyway, but when he was drafted by the 49ers in the second round, he knew had a perfect setting.
“I was like, ‘What better spot than the bridge?‘ ” McDonald said, via Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News.
Yeah, as romantic locations for engagements go, the Golden Gate Bridge probably tops anything he’d have found in Cincinnati or Jacksonville (or anywhere, really).
“Every day we tell each other: ‘This is an unbelievable place,’ ” he said.
He waited until after the draft to see where he’d be spending the next few years. So he planned a sunset visit, popped the question, and got strangers to take their picture on one of the country’s great landmarks — getting his career off to a good start regardless how much he plays this year.
